Remarks & Notes 
Work Extra 315 at Dalton. Just a few minutes prior to the alpine sunset, Work Extra 315 passes the private crossing at Dalton with a single boxcar and a short train of gons.

I waited here with several friends for what seemed to be an eternity, as little 315 struggled up the 4% with her string of freight cars. With the late evening sun fading fast behind a deck of cirrus clouds near the horizon, I thought the sweet light would be pretty much gone by the time the train hit the dirt road crossing in front of me. Even one minute prior to arrival, this shot looked like a complete bust. Then, just as the train appeared and approached the crossing, the sun came back out and voila! I had what is probably my all-time favorite shot from Dalton....and of a rare C-18 Consolidation at that!

The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad are all that remains of the legendary Denver & Rio Grande Western narrow gauge system. Here you'll find some of my favorites from these two beautiful railways.
